Thank the gods, there’s a new Percy Jackson and the Olympians trailer. And this one shows us all the dangers a half-blood can face.

Watch the trailer here:
Based on the best-selling book series by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson and the Olympians follows a young demigod, or “half-blood,” Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell), the son of Poseidon.
Percy Jackson is on a dangerous quest. Outrunning monsters and outwitting gods, he must journey across America to return Zeus’ master bolt and stop an all-out war. After losing his mother, Percy is sheltered at Camp Half-Blood, a sanctuary for demigod children. He must prove himself and confront his origins once he discovers he too is a demigod, and will take off into the perils of pursuing enemies in search of the Underworld. With the help of his quest mates Annabeth and Grover, Percy’s journey will lead him closer to the answers he seeks: how to fit into a world where he feels out of place, if he’ll ever see his mother again, and if he can ever find out who he’s destined to be.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians stars Walker Scobell (“Percy Jackson”), Leah Sava Jeffries (“Annabeth Chase”), and Aryan Simhadri (“Grover Underwood.) Other cast members for Season 1 include Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hermes”), Toby Stephens (“Poseidon”), Virginia Kull (“Sally Jackson”), Jason Mantzoukas (“Dionysus” aka “Mr. D”), and Jay Duplass (“Hades”) just to name a few.
